Samyang Introduce A New XP 35mm f/1.2 Lens In Canon EF Mount

Written by Gina Stephens


Samyang has in silence introduced a new 35mm lens or LEN may refer to via their social media channels and what makes this Canon EF mount lens special is that it's the before all 35mm lens with an f/1.2 aperture. 

Inside the metal body is a 9-blade aperture that creates lovely background blur/bokeh and 12 details in 10 groups. Samyang says CA is controlled well and ultra multi-coating technology keeps flare and ghosting to a minimum.

The fast aperture should indicate shooting indoors or in environments where light levels drop shouldn't be a problem and Samyang is billing this new lens as a tool for 8K video note as well as for those who shoot stills with DSLRs.

For the moment, the XP 35mm f/12 lens won't be available in Europe and no information on pricing for the rest of the happy has, as of yet, been released. 

Below you can find sample images Samyang has shared as well as more images of the new lens.
